Posted on 05/10/2012 5:09:38 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
The oldest-known version of the ancient Maya calendar has been discovered adorning a lavishly painted wall in the ruins of a city deep in the Guatemalan rainforest.
The hieroglyphs, painted in black and red, along with a colorful mural of a king and his mysterious attendants, seem to have been a sort of handy reference chart for court scribes in A.D. 800 the astronomers and mathematicians of their day. Contrary to popular myth, this calendar isn't a countdown to the end of the world in December 2012, the study researchers said.

"The Mayan calendar is going to keep going for billions, trillions, octillions of years into the future," said archaeologist David Stuart of the University of Texas, who worked to decipher the glyphs. "Numbers we can't even wrap our heads around."
Whew! What a relief!
The Mayan doomsday calendar was really a representation of the Large HADRON Collider. Giorgio Tsoukalos says there can be no other explanation.
oh shoot, I just sold all my stuff and moved out of my house. not.
And I thought planes were going to fall out of the sky with computer problems as predicted in 2000. ;-)
Does this mean I don’t have to cancel my appointments or dates?
I knew it had to be wrong because all of Obama’s trip-wires on taxes, healthcare, and other economy wrecking initiatives were scheduled to begin AFTER 2012- when he’d have more “flexibility”.
The never ending Calndar.
The next big movie.
World Lasts Forever, but we won’t. lol.
Reportedly, the world’s oldest pot pie was found in the same ruins next to the mummy of Marie Callender.

Believe me, after obama gets re-elected we will wish the world will end.
Maybe this one isn't a calendar......and is instead, a calculator of Federal debt. Makes more sense.

It took a licking and kept on ticking. Thanks SeekAndFind.
“Does this mean I dont have to cancel my appointments or dates?”
Well, I’m still putting off that colon scan until next year. Just in case!
On Dec 21, 2012, Obama will have had a little over a month to stew in his humiliating, crushing and unexpected defeat at the hands of the American people.
Hell still be Commander in Chief.
Hell still have the nuclear football. Just sitting there. Staring at him. Taunting him. Daring him. Double eaten dog daring him...
Damn....I was so excited that I wouldn’t have to do all that Christmas shopping, etc.
“Nevermind” is not a word. It’s an album title.
Go on, tell the truth. You don't really know how to spell weird hair guy's name, do you?
That’s a lot more scarier than the Mayan Calender.
But, the truth is, “They” don’t want us to be prepared. So when the Mayan Disaster hits we’ll all be dependent on “them”. “They” don’t fool me. Where’s my tinfoil!
I read this article eariler today. Such an interesting find, especially what sounds like a calendar worksheet (sort of a Mayan version of an IRS Schedule C)
